However you use it, cannabis truly provides a full body experience. From pain relief to better sleep, this dynamic plant has broad advantages, both inside and out.
While the focus tends to be on its internal use, there are topical applications – some of which may surprise you.
One application is for dry skin. Compounds called cannabinoids found in the plant help stimulate the oil-producing glands in the epidermis called sebaceous glands. Helping the skin produce more sebum, allows it to stay hydrated naturally by sealing moisture in.
Skin inflammation, either caused from excessive dryness or other factors, can be relieved. Cannabinoids work with the body’s endocannabinoid system to help promote balance within many functions of the body. Receptors in our skin help direct the cannabidol where it needs to go.
This is especially helpful for those suffering from painful skin conditions like eczema, where the skin becomes inflamed, itchy and irritating. Provide some welcome relief with products that have anti-inflammatory properties.
The same goes for psoriasis, which is a chronic skin condition that can cause patches of red scaly skin that are often painful and itchy. The symptoms are caused by the rapid replication of skin cells which causes a scaly build-up on the skin. Studies have shown that using CBD topically helps slow down the production of these cells. Relieve the plain from these aggravating symptoms.
Whether or not you’ve experienced the severe, above-mentioned skin conditions, chances are you’ve experienced sunburn. Applying cannabinoids to sunburned skin provides effective relief by soothing irritation. Not only does cannabinoids immediately target inflammation, it directly interacts with a specific cell receptor called TRPV1, which is responsible for controlling our perceived sensation to heat. Treating sunburn not only lessens the pain and uncomfortable itchiness, it calms the skin and helps it cool down.
